August 28th, 1972, Capt. Steve Ritchie, flying his favorite F-4 #463, was leading Buick Flight from the east over North Vietnam. Suddenly, there was a lot of chatter over the UHF radio, chatter from Red Crown (Navy radar ship) off the coast and Disco (Air Force RC-121 orbiting over Laos). Buick Flight was alerted about two MiG-21s 60 miles away. Ritchie headed southwest, in the direction to intercept, passing huge thunderheads and cumulus clouds. Red Crown called, "MiGs are RTB; “they’re in your front quarter Buick, 40 miles and closing, 25, 15, 10, 5." Ritchie strained for a visual and jammed the throttles of his big jet into full afterburner, climbing and turning toward the targets. Red Crown called again, "Bandits 239..." Ritchie, "I got'em, I got'em." The future Ace tightened his left turn to the max and the Four-Star Phantom strained under the G forces. Now, in the 6 o'clock position and closing, Ritchie fired the last two Sparrows. First the left...then the right. A fireball engulfed the MiG-21 and lit up the sky. Capt. Ritchie of the famed 555th Fighter Squadron had just become the first and only Air Force Pilot Ace of the Vietnam War. Print includes a Certificate of Authenticity and measures about 30”w x 24”h.
